6.5oz, 4-piece, fly rods in 11ft 6-8 weight lines, 11ft9 7 weight line or 12ft 8 weight line.
It's no secret that dedicated salmon and steelhead anglers are on a program all their own. It takes dedication, determination, drive and maybe just a little bit of madness to stand outside in cold, wet conditions all day swinging flies to anadromous species. There is an addicting rhythm to the swing-step-swing-step routine of two-handed fishing, and you need a rod that will let you lose yourself in that rhythm without worrying about the next cast. The 12-foot, 8-weight Clearwater Switch has come to answer the call.
The 7-weight Switch rod, just shy of 12 feet, is a cannon that you will want in your arsenal. With the backbone to battle summer and winter steelhead and a smooth swing you'll appreciate during a long day on the water, this is a strong choice for the angler seeking to add a two-handed rig to their quiver. Often touted as the best all-around weight by steelhead experts, this 7-weight rod punches through stubborn wind and throws large flies with aplomb.
Or perhaps you love the feel of a 6-weight switch rod but are worried about the 12-foot-plus length being just a bit too much for the waters you haunt? Enter the 11-foot 6-weight Clearwater Switch. Swing for trout on the Yellowstone and punch past the determined Paradise Valley wind. Ideal for tossing large streamers when the conditions are tough, this rod will be your new best friend when the spring storms blow through.
Simply put, fishing big water with big fly rods requires a lot of effort. Why not make it easier—and more affordable—for yourself? Clearwater® Switch rods provide high-end performance at an excellent price, giving you the back-saving ease of two-handed casting with wallet-saving benefits. Now you can chase trout across the country and still have enough gas money to make it back home.
